Bodhi Heart Sanctuary is a non-sectarian Buddhist Society nested in the busy city of Penang and yet among lush greenery. Indeed, a most suitable getaway for associating, learning, reflecting and savoring the gentle and beautiful teachings of the Buddha.

We plan to have a wide variety of spiritual programs to help you discover a more balanced, meaningful and fulfilling lifestyle.

Our aim is to serve Dharma learning for the truth seeker and extensive welfare activities for the needy public. It is also our aim to share our facilities with any Buddhist entities who share the dreams of helping humanity.

Join us to make and shape history yours and humanity.

We are registered with Malaysian Buddhist Association, PG 111/ 29141, an umbrella body for Buddhist temples in Malaysia in October 2006.

Meaning of Bodhi Heart

Our Guiding Principles

Bodhi means awakening or enlightenment and bodhi-heart means a heart that is awakened or enlightened.

An awakened or enlightened heart is a heart that is nurtured and balanced in the qualities of compassion and wisdom.

The landscape, structure and activities of this Bodhi-Heart Sanctuary will then be an expression of and a guidance from both compassion and wisdom hence, our motto Compassion with Wisdom.
